“Great Vegetarian Food !”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Great Vege food at the heart of Thanjaavur city. Their "Thaali set" was what we had. Quite a number of varieties. You will be served rice when you have the thaali set.

Note : Be prepared for the food to be spicy as this is the way South Indian Food is.

“Nice Food, Below Average Service and Cleanliness”
Reviewed December 21, 2010

Having recently traveled to Tanjore on a sightseeing trip with my family, I stopped at Hotel Gnanam for lunch at their restaurant Sahana. I had 2 young children along with me.

Having had a casual glance on the internet that this was one of the upmarket hotels in Tanjore also helped in making the decision.

When we reached the restaurant it was at its peak for lunch and full. We had to wait for close to 10 minutes before a used table could be cleaned and given to us. The cleanliness is equivalent to that of a Udipi hotel that you would find on the road in any city or town. Having been seated it took another 5 minutes for the order to be placed (Bombay Meals, Paneer Pulao, Navrathan Khorma, Phulkas, Sweet Lime Juice) and another 15 minutes before it could be served. During this time the children were getting restless due to hunger. The Meals came first after much prodding without the soup, which came after another 10 minutes. We started quenching our hunger with this. After another 10 minutes the remaining food came minus a few accompaniments which was also served after asking for them.

Though the quality and taste of food was very good and the family enjoyed it, the service and cleanliness left a lot to be desired.

VFM - Not much.
